Double intramural coronary arteries in D-transposition of the great arteries

Ann Thorac Surg. 2004 Dec;78(6):2181-3. doi: 10.1016/S0003-4975(03)01532-7.


We report a rare case of D-transposition of the great arteries with intramural origin of both the left and right coronary arteries. The patient underwent a successful arterial switch operation at 7 days of life with an uneventful postoperative course. Regardless of challenging coronary anatomy, the arterial switch operation remains the optimal approach for repair of the transposition of the great arteries in the neonate.
